Feedback from the ECO-COMPASS special session at ICCS20

The ECO-COMPASS project held its first workshop on Tuesday 5 September 2017. The special session was organised in collaboration with ICCS20 at the premises of the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers in Paris. The primary aim of this event was to offer the presenters a forum to engage with large audience, encourage open exchange of information with fellow delegates and present the latest advancements of the project.

The event proved to be a unique opportunity for the participants to obtain an overview of the recent achievements on the research scene, with 7 presentations from the participating EU and Chinese organisations. The workshop attendees had the opportunity to engage in fruitful discussions and networking with more than 30 representatives of academia, research community and industry involved in ECO-COMPASS. Finally, the 2 keynote presentations from distinguished individuals gave a clear insight on the future trends and priorities with respect to application of bio-based composite materials in aviation and aerospace, positioning the ECO-COMPASS project on the relative technology trajectory. About 100 delegates participated in the event.
